The ISA Security Compliance Institute (ISCI) is offering system-level cybersecurity certification for industrial automation and control systems (IACS) products. ISCI also announced the availability of an organizational certification that ensures suppliers are following cybersecurity development and support lifecycle processes for IACS products.

Supplier organizations are encouraged to contact an ISASecure-accredited lab for details on these new certifications and the steps for certifying IACS products and their organization’s product development and support lifecycle processes.

The new product certification is the System Security Assurance (ISASecure SSA), which assesses the cybersecurity of off-the-shelf industrial control systems and certifies conformance to IEC 62443-3-3.

The objective of this certification is to ensure cybersecurity robustness for off-the-shelf control systems and to certify that the systems are free from known vulnerabilities.

The SSA program description and certification specifications are available for download in PDF format from the ISCI website at
